POTTER COUNTY, TX (KFDA) - A man wanted out of Potter County for nearly twenty years was found just a state away earlier this week.

Tulsa County authorities say Michael Blankenship, 54, was booked early Wednesday morning after deputies learned of the outstanding aggravated assault warrant for his arrest.

Potter County court records show the warrant was issued in 1999, after Blankenship allegedly stabbed another person with a screwdriver.

The arrest record posted an unspecified Oklahoma address.

Blankenship is expected to be extradited to Potter County for arraignment.
